Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I’ve lived locally for many years and whilst this isn’t the closest pub to me it is my preferred pub. I’ve always thought it could be better and now JW Lees have taken it over I think in time it will reach its potential. I’ve...eaten there four or five times since December, the staff are friendly, the food and beer are good. 👍More

Visited with a friend and chose the steak pie chips peas and gravy. It arrived and looked ok but I’m afraid - like my last visit - it wasn’t great. The chips were pale and quite soggy, the peas were more liquid than actual peas...and the meat in the pie was chewy. I really wish I could say it was fabulous as I do like this pub/restaurant, but it just wasn’t. The service was good and the manageress was friendlyMore

What a brilliant pub! Food is varied, of excellent quality and good portion size. Like the weekday offers and specials. Great selection of beers, really good real ales and craft beers. Staff are welcoming, very obliging and everything is done with a smile. Locals are...chatty and friendly. Wish it was my local!!More

Lovely food, lovely lady behind the bar. Travelled 6.5 hours from Dorset to pick up a puppy the next day, stayed at the Travel Lodge, this pub is next door, with a welcoming atmosphere, good pub food and a warm fire. Whats not to like!!
